Tiffany Affair Are Starting A Fire On Reprise
Posted on July 1, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
Takeover Ent./Reprise Records is pleased to announce that it has signed female urban pop act Tiffany Affair. The group, which is made up of four teenage singers and dancers from New York City, was brought to Reprise Records by famed guitarist Robert Randolph, alongside Takeover Ent — debut album slated for a Fall 2006 release.
Tiffany Affair delivers a fresh young urban pop sound that is hip enough to appeal to both urban and Top 40 audiences. The first single, “Start A Fire,” which was produced by Stargate, the Norwegian production duo responsible for Ne-Yo’s smash hit “So Sick,” features the group’s soulful R&B vocals, driving rhythmic production, and edgy hip-hop flavor, thanks to a guest rap by Jazze Pha protégé Jody Breeze.
The girls of Tiffany Affair — Bianca, Ayanna, Natasha, and Gabrielle — are each accomplished singers and dancers who began performing in commercials and musical theater at a young age. The girls met at school and through mutual friends, and with their early achievements, they instantly formed a connection – which is exemplified by the music they create together. They count John Legend, Alicia Keys, Destiny’s Child, Gwen Stefani, Boyz II Men, and Christina Aguilera among their musical influences.
The group is currently in New York City, working with JerZ & Clay (Notorious B.I.G., Diddy), and KayGee (Jaheim) on material for their debut album (tentatively titled, Flavors), as well as developing choreography for their live show.
Performing is their passion and they welcome the hard work it will take, despite all obstacles - these girls are destined to make noise in the pop arena.
